She communicated effectively and promptly, gave us advice and recommendations even before we hired her. Gemma was prompt every day she met us. Her energy and knowledge were amazing. She knew history, geography, geopolitics, places to visit, places not to visit, restaurants and opportunities we did not think about, because of traffic or interest level, weather and safety, both nature ventures and urban locations. I only regret not having her for a tour guide more than the two days we’ve spent with her. Here is one anecdote: When we realized it was going to be one rainy day we changed our plans and had her take us to Figueres, to the Dali Museum. She changed the plans for the day literally in the last minute and acted like a museum guide. Most impressive she was so good as a guide, people, strangers, joined us from a distance to listen to her room by room and almost painting by painting explained in detail. We were interested in history and Gemma spoke about it with detailed knowledge and took us to archaeological digs that only specialized certified tour guides are able to enter. She was very impressive!! We already gave her name with highest recommendations to our friends. not enough words to describe our satisfaction and admiration!!
Gemma was outstanding – very knowledgeable and professional. Thank you Gemma!
It is so easy to write a review when things go well. I would like Gemma to show me around our own home city! Everything went as planned. She was a complete professional with the nicest personality. Honestly don’t think that you could have a better guide. If you are hesitating, don’t! Gemma is the real deal!!!!
Gemma was outstanding. Great personality, very good English, and as informative as you could want. Took us to both known and non-tourist must see/experience places. Highly recommended.
This was by far the best tour guide I’ve ever had the privilege to meet. She is extremely knowledgeable, and she very quickly tuned in to my specific interests, so it really became a tailor-made experience. I got to learn a lot of facts not easily found in your run-of-the-mill guide books or websites. A very pleasant person to interact, Gemma was always eagerly elaborating on every detail I laid my eyes on. In my opinion, she is THE guide to turn to for any of your tours in Catalunya!
We had the desire to see more than could reasonably fit into one day but Gemma and her driver helped us navigate the Dali museum and home, a real taste of the natural coastal beauty, and the narrow, winding roads to Cadaques with skill, charm, and knowledge. I would recommend Gemma for an excursion in and around Barcelona – and would call her again the next time I am in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Gemma. We learned so much about the history of Girona and would definitely recommend Gemma and “Get Your Guide” to any friends who visit Girona.
This was an outstanding tour. Our guide had excellent english and stayed with us beyond her 3 hours. She was a balance mix of history and local up to date information. It was the best city tour I have ever done and we all got so much from it.
Thank you for a perfectly organised day out to Costa Brava, accompanied with your superb commentary. We had a great time and learned a lot along the way.
We used Gemma for two tours in Barcelona. The first was a tour of the Barri Gòtic with two stops for tapas. I need to eat gluten free and Gemma had thoughtfully arranged, in advance, to have one of the restaurants read to prepare any dish I wanted. The second was a more wide ranging tour that included both Park Güell and La Pedrera ending when she bought us tickets for Casa Batlló. She carefully prepared the day to minimize all inconveniences. She is warm, knowledgeable and easy to be with.
Thank you so much for the very informative Tour – My Family and I were much impressed with all your knowledge / details of the History Barcelona
We had a wonderful and afternoon touring Barcelona with Gemma. She was very accommodating to our group – she was very flexible with the hours of the tour and made them fit us! I would highly recommend Gemma to make your visit to Barcelona a great one.
Gemma is wonderful! I had booked her to help take my boss and 3 others (one cameraman) around Barcelona’s top tour spots including La Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, and Montjuic Hill to film for a movie. She went above and beyond to help us confirm filming at each location, and took great care of everyone with booking a private car and accommodations with a wheel chair. Highly recommended!
a pleasure for the four of us to share time with her!
I told her what my interests were and she fullfilled my interests totally her local knowledge was great and was able to answer all my questions. I will certainly visit Barcelona again and use her services.
We were 14 adults looking for a tour of the Gothic Quarters of Barcelona with a little tapas tasting en route. Gemma was a perfect guide, friendly, informative, relaxed and happy. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, we would highly recommend, and when back in Barcelona I’d seek Gemma out for another tour. Thanks Gemma, Suzanne and friends 🙂
Gemma made our trip to Barcelona. She was our guide on two tours, Gaudi and Picasso. Her knowledge on every topic was outstanding and her enthusiasm made feel quite a part of this beautiful city. We would strongly recommend using Gemma as a guide.
She took us on the perfect 4 hour city tour which included Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, and the Barrio Gotico, pointing out many things along the way that the average visitor wouldn’t know or experience on their own. She provided us with a great overview of the history of Barcelona and all of the important sights of the city. Thank you Gemma for making our visit to Barcelona very memorable! I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting the city.
I’m just writing to let you know again how much we enjoyed our walking tours with you. We are still talking about how wonderful it was to have you as a tour guide. Not only did we enjoy our hours with you, but your guidance allowed us to better enjoy the rest of our week knowing where we were going and what we were seeing. Thanks again so much, Gemma, for helping to make our Barcelona trip so special. I hope to see you in 12 years when we return to see the completed Sagrada Familia!
I am back in the states with my body but my heart is still in Barcelona. I will never forget you and the wonderful time we had touring in Barcelona. You made the Sagrada Familia a memory to last the rest of my life. Thank you so much for being a part of my first European trip.
Hello from Miami ! We just got back last night. We all LOVED the trip to Figueres and would highly recommend you to anyone traveling to Spain . Gemma was wonderful, patient, and so knowledgeable. Students asked her questions about so many things all the way to Figueres and she answered each one with such interesting replies. We learned much about Dali and his work, but also about the culture, customs, and life style (they asked about university studies, costs; etc.). These were a group of tourism students about to join the tourism business and this trip was very helpful to them all. Great job! Thanks you so much, Donna.
We did enjoy a lot in Barcelona and you gave us a wonderful & comprehensive guide in Barcelona.
You are enthusiastic, clear & knowledgable and my girls loved your tour. We will definitely engage you again if we are back & recommend you to others too!
We just wanted to say thanks for the great tours on Friday and Sunday. We really enjoyed Sunday and were impressed with your knowledge. It was great.
Also thank you for the recommendation for lunch at ca l’ Estevet. We liked it so much we went back on Monday for dinner and are heading to dinner there again tonight. Pepe is a great host and he prepared a special tasting menu for us on Monday. His food is outstanding!
Thank you Gemma. We had a lovely and memorable time in Barcelona this Dec. Thanks for your good arrangement so that my family were able to visit the lovely country side, visited the olive processing plant, able to taste the wonderful local. Olives and olive oil. The visit to Montserrat was wonderful with so that we were able to see such a historical site and took so many great pictures, as well while we stop by along the road at the hill. The trip overall was very educational and eye opening. Thank you for the information and background that you have given us during the trip and we have learned a lot. I would surely recommend this to anyone who would like to see more about Barcelona. Thanks again Gemma for your tour and also please thank the driver who has given us a very safe and efficient ride. I do hope that we will meet again because we surely will come to Barcelona again and would love to ask you to take us and guide us to see more. I am very sure that there are much more places that you can show us and let us see and learn more about Barcelona and the area nearby. All the best from Li’s family.
We enjoyed a scenic ride through the city and northward toward Girona with Gemma, our highly educated and well spoken guide, pointing out every landmark and explaining the history, economics, geography and culture related details of each. The City of Girona was very scenic and interesting and provided an opportunity for a quick lunch at a sidewalk cafe. The city of Figueres seemed more modern and held our destination, the Salvador Dali Museum. Most people might recognize this artist’s “melting watches” but his modern, surrealistic style encompasses an unbelievable array of techniques and objects. Gemma mentioned that her area of study was NOT art, but art must be at least a hobby, if not a passion. She was incredibly knowledgeable and able to pass on her wealth of information to us in a most personable way. Thanks once again to Gemma providing a wonderfully enjoyable, scenic, and educational day.
Very happy to have made your acquaintance, we consider ourselves lucky to have met you. Thanks again for showing us around catalonia
Thank you for the amazing time I had on the two tours in which you guided. Without your expertise and professionalism, I dont think my trip to Barcelona would have been half as enjoyable as it was while attending your tours.
